Baltimore residents, plagued by high crime and high tax rates, are used to seeing red. But on Tuesday they will begin to see some blue.
That's when the Police Department will put 50 additional uniformed officers on the street in areas determined by computer analysis to have a need for such old-time policing, the department announced yesterday.
Said spokesman Dennis S. Hill, "We realize in the summertime it stays light longer and more things are going on. We have isolated the problem areas and want to beef up foot patrols in those areas that need it. This is a fairly substantial contribution of people."
